Phi Kappa Phi Offers Fellowships, Scholarships

Published: Mar 12, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 12, 2014) — The University of Kentucky chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi will celebrate its fifth birthday next month. Since receiving its official charter, the chapter has seen six individuals from UK earn scholarship and fellowship awards from the national office, which each year distributes more than $1 million to outstanding students, Phi Kappa Phi members and chapters.

 

"The University of Kentucky Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi (PKP) is pleased to again announce a series of grants available through the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society," said Kenneth Roberts, Slone Professor of Community Pharmacy Leadership and dean meritus of the UK College Pharmacy, who is president of the UK chapter.

 

The following opportunities are available for students and faculty at UK. Interested individuals should visit the Phi Kappa Phi website for information. Go to Awards at www.PhiKappaPhi.org.

 

Fellowship Program

Each year, the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi awards 51 fellowships of $5,000 each and three at $15,000 each to members entering the first year of graduate or professional study. Each Phi Kappa Phi chapter may select one candidate from among its local applicants to compete for the society-wide awards. Applications are due no later than April 7, 2014 to the UK Chapter, 224 Funkhouser Bldg. Each chapter may send only one nominee forward.

 

Study Abroad Grant

Open to all UK students, these grants are designed to help support undergraduates as they seek knowledge and experience in their academic fields by studying abroad. Students may apply directly to Phi Kappa Phi for these awards. 50 grants of $1,000 each are awarded annually.  Deadline to apply is April 1, 2014.

 

Literacy Grant

This program was initiated to mobilize members and resources of Phi Kappa Phi and the higher education community to champion literacy initiatives. Grants of up to $2,500 are available to Phi Kappa Phi chapters and individual members to fund ongoing literacy projects or to create new initiatives. The Society's commitment to the cause of literacy grows out of and is consistent with its mission, which was expanded to include "…and to engage the community of scholars in service to others." Deadline to apply is April 1, 2014.

 

Love of Learning Award

These awards help fund post-baccalaureate studies and career development opportunities including graduate and professional studies, doctoral dissertations, continuing education, and travel related to teaching or studies. Students may apply directly to Phi Kappa Phi for these awards. 140 awards of $500 each are awarded annually. Deadline to apply is June 30, 2014.

 

Applicants for the Fellowship Program, Literacy Grant, and Love of Learning Award must be active Phi Kappa Phi members (with dues paid) or those who have accepted membership by June 30, 2014. Again, the Study Abroad Grant program is open to any UK student.

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest, and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Its chapters are on more than 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Each year, approximately 30,000 members are initiated.

 

Since its founding, Phi Kappa Phi has initiated more than 1 million members into its ranks; all of these members have received emblems and certificates of membership. However, Phi Kappa Phi is much more than an emblem and a line on a résumé. It is a global network comprised of the best and brightest from all academic disciplines - a community of scholars and professionals building an enduring legacy for future generations.
